To give youth a voice and a platform to create their own future.
A network of youth who have been empowered to identify, pursue and leverage their passions for the good of society and themselves.
Every child has extraordinary talent and ability. However two of the greatest challenges to unlocking this potential are boredom and lack of opportunity.
Prodigy combats indifferent attitudes toward learning by creating opportunities for youth to explore and pursue their interests outside of the classroom.
Youth need to be met where they are and be given opportunities to lead in tangible ways that allow them to learn, grow and develop their own voice and vision. Youth should also be empowered to pursue their passions, set their own goals and create their own futures.

Sports have the power to transcend societal barriers and serve as a unifying language, especially for youth.
Sports are often held in high regard as a way to “make it out” and excel financially, especially in under-resourced communities. Yet youth are taught very little about the professional opportunities that exist in this global, multi-billion dollar industry outside of relatively short-term careers as athletes.
Why? The interest in, and passion for sports that many youth possess can be leveraged to communicate academic concepts, develop meaningful and authentic relationships with peers and adults, and provide exposure to a world beyond their perceived limitations.
